Our new developer-first Blockstack.org

We've redesigned blockstack.org to make key resources more accessible for developers.

 

Blockstack’s ecosystem has grown to thousands of enthusiastic developers contributing to the project and building decentralized apps like Stealthy, Graphite, and others. We’ve worked closely with our developer community on the next iteration of Blockstack.org, an effort we think is an important evolution in supporting developers.


Blockstack is a developer-centric community and platform; we believe the new website better represents the mission of the project. Our website is still available at blockstack.org, and Blockstack Public Benefit Corp maintains it.

 

Here are a few upgrades to the site:

  • Easy to find tutorials for how to get started
  • Short feature comparison between Firebase and Blockstack
  • Links to various technical details and components of the Blockstack network
  • Information for developers to get funding
  • Open source code from Blockstack dapps

 

Now, whether you’re a novice coder or veteran engineer, building with Blockstack should feel more accessible to you. We’re gearing up for an exciting phase in the growth of the Blockstack ecosystem, thank you for being a part of the community and as always, let us know if you have questions, concerns, or feedback.

Meet Dappy: The Universal Wallet Bounty Winner

Head on over to App.co to try the Universal Wallet App Finalists

 

Please join us in congratulating Dappy! Teams from around the world had two months to build a user-controlled wallet that allows you to add unique tokens and 'shapeshift' in and out of them without ever leaving your app. 

 

Dappy, built with Blockstack and ShapeShift, was selected for its complete feature set and intuitive user interface. They will be awarded the $50,000 Universal Wallet Bounty prize and have put together an exciting roadmap.  

 

All the bounty finalists are open source and are listed in the wallet category on App.co. Note that they are all in alpha so if you experience any bugs, provide your feedback to the creators, they will definitely appreciate it.

 

Hope you enjoy!

We are convening those who want to build a web that...Remembers. Forgets. That’s safe. That cares about people. That’s a marketplace. That’s a public square. That learns. That’s magical. That’s fun. A web with many winners.
